Baggies defender poised for return

Published Add your comment

West Brom's key defender Jonas Olsson is poised to return after a three-month absence for the home Barclays Premier League clash with Blackpool on January 15.

Olsson has been sidelined with an Achilles problem since October but has now returned to full training.

In his absence Albion have leaked 24 goals in 12 league games, and manager Roberto Di Matteo said: "I am not sure whether Jonas will be back for Saturday but we are hopeful he will be back for the next league game against Blackpool."

He added: "He has been out for quite a long time and he is a very important player for us.

"It is a fact that we haven't lost many games when Jonas has been in the team."
